CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - A former home health care provider in Virginia has been sentenced to eight months in federal prison for defrauding the Medicaid program.

U.S. Attorney John P. Fishwick said Thursday that 43-year-old Amanda Moye Randolph of Palmyra also was ordered to pay more than $136,000 in restitution.

Randoph pleaded guilty last October to one count of theft of public money and one count of falsifying records.

According to prosecutors, Randolph was CEO of Karlise In-Home Care. Randolph hid her employment from the government while improperly collecting disability and other federal benefits.

Randolph also fabricated missing information from patient files during a state investigation to avoid being forced to reimburse Medicaid expenditures for incorrectly documented services.
